The Baltimore Orioles and Minnesota Twins begin a three-game series Tuesday night at Target Field.

The Baltimore Orioles get victories when their offense shows up, as they’re 6-2 in their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Manny Machado leads Baltimore with 43 hits, Mark Trumbo has 24 RBI and Chris Davis has eight home runs. Tyler Wilson gets the nod, and he’s 1-1 with a 3.04 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season.

The Minnesota Twins need a victory in order to snap a five-game losing streak. The Twins have allowed 20 runs in their last three games and six or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Minnesota Twins have an ERA of 4.75 and have lost eight straight games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Joe Mauer leads Minnesota with 32 hits, Brian Dozier has 14 RBI and Byung Ho Park has seven home runs. Jose Berrios takes the hill, and he’s 1-1 with a 6.75 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. This will be Berrios’ first career game against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series and 4-1 in Wilsons last 5 starts. The Twins are 6-2 in their last 8 Tuesday games and 0-4 in their last 4 vs. American League East. The Orioles are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings in Minnesota and 3-8 in the last 11 meetings overall.
The Twins are simply unbackable during their losing stretch, as they're not scoring and are giving up runs by the boatload. Minnesota leaves me no choice but to take the Orioles and the small line.
